Jacksun Bein (b. 2002, Louisiana) is interested in subject-object relations, psycho-sexual tropes, and image capture/release. Bein’s work operates as performative networks spanning writing, sculpture, images, and dead/alive/immortal emptiness.

Completing a BFA from The Cooper Union, Jacksun’s thesis expands upon ideas of the mule and will be exhibited in April of 2024. Additionally, Bein is working on long term research of American prison museums, the purpose of invisibility, and spectacles of the sub-human. The project’s first iteration focused on the Angola Museum at the Louisiana State Penitentiary, and will continue investigating the Ohio State Reformatory’s Paranormal Psychic Convention, presented in New York in February 2024.
